Japanese language & culture blog

Someecards is a free online e-cards service. Unlike most other postcards, however, these feature dry, witty one-liners making parody of sentiments found in the traditional greeting cards, and sometimes features content that could be considered offensive if taken seriously.

In addition to official cards, users can submit their own creations, combining one of the existing illustrations with a custom caption. Here’s a selection of ten user-contributed someecards related to Japan. Please take them lightly, and if you have any better ideas, feel free to create your own 😉
